't use that in talking to a reporter because the humor that was done on the barack obama campaign's tumbler and all of those things, i loved it. >> but it could be off message. you go through these intense campaign, you've got thousands of e-mails then you unplugged no internet for a week. what did youern from that experience, harper? >> i set out -- i realized i was addicted to e-mail. i think we all tra v that. i was at dinner with my wife and i was like "just a second." >> what are you talking about? i don't know what you mean! >> so i realized that we went from getting thousands of e-mails to suddenly like ten and it was a little bit -- i think there's a lot of ego in technology and so it's a little bit like i was like aren't i important? what happened? what happened? >> so you decided to opt out? >> i wanted to just put a distance between that part of my life and what was coming up next because i figured it's going to ramp up again but i wanted to have this tiny bit of time where i could just read. >> tell our viewers what was the best thing you read when you unplugged? >> i
up what our first read has put out today, talking about president obama's announcement, saying bottom line, obama is going to go as big as he can go, realizing there's little political downside, at least in the short term. chris, your reaction to that? is there really no downside to going straight for this as strongly as he can, fresh out of the gate and off the heels of the gun task force of the vice president's suggestions? >> well, obviously it's going to depend on what the president proposes but i think you've seen from the polls and i think you've seen the reaction from the country that something needs to be done. this is not something that's going to be solved with one simple measure. i think the president and his team have decided that a more comprehensive, bold approach is the smart thing to do. part that's disappointing to me is in this entire debate that kind of erupted obviously after the newtown shootings, is you've not heard anything from the republicans in terms of what they would be willing to even consider. would they consider magazines, would they consider any type of
and senior political reporter for politico and michael smerconish, a radio talk show host. let me start with you. there is an article today that said why president obama's gun plan may be doomed and said there strong indications that comprehensive legislation won't even see a vote on the house flew. you heard me. wasn't to put him on the pot, but i watched like you since new town and people said things have changed. i have yet to see and maybe you know of a few republican who is said things have changed and maybe it is time to put a man on assault weapons or some of the language ta is different than what we are hearing accusing the president of tyranny a power grab and the other accusations. >> let's separate two things. first of all, if you watch that press conference, a good solid one third was a direct appeal to the american people. he repeated himself over and over again. you heard congressman larson on the talking points and common sense. this is only going to happen if the american people want it to happen. you are going to see i think the president is prepared to use capital on t
with the headline saying that he could slow down obama's efforts on gun control. have the two of you talked about any sort of compromise legislation? guest: we've had some good conversations in terms of the leadup to this new congress. he called to congratulate me, and he and i have had some discussions about different things that we might work together on, but we have not specifically spoken about gun issues. host: immigration reform? guest: we have not talked about immigration reform in the broader sense and my predecessor, lamar smith, had extensive discussions with regard to the legislation that the house passed at the end of the last congress in december to address a program that i've been trying to eliminate for many years called the visa lottery or visa diversity program. 55,000 green cards given away not based on family reunification or job skills that are needed in the united states but based on pure luck. that was then tied to a program to encourage people who attend u.s. universities with science, technology, engineering and mathematics backgrounds to stay in the u.s., use those skills
. after the ban expired, that jumped from 9% to 20%. colin goddard, can you talk about the impact you think the assault weapons ban could have of president obama succeeds in his push to reinstate it? first, if he could talk about the power of the national rice -- national rifle association. there posting in the months since the newtown massacre, there's been more than 100,000 -- they have had more than one had a thousand members. >> we have also received an inundation of phone calls from people who have never spoken about this senate wanted to get involved in our work. we just met last night in d.c. with every major progressive group that works on policy and they're all coming together around this issue. we are really encouraged to see how many people are coming to us. i don't know the total number, but i'm sure it is comparable to the 100,000 nra got. if we announce we just got over $5 million for people who want to see new policies become law. we have to think about that. when the nra is speaking, they represent a gun manufacturers and the big gun business. they don't represent the
talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other things and we'll work on it. one of your fellow graduates of georgetown, senator durbin, deserves every kind of honor and praise for what he's done in the dream act. he'll be very important in this. >> good morning, senator. "the washington post" had a piece yesterday suggesting that you represented perhaps an obstacle to the passage of gun control legislation. i'm wondering -- obviously you do in a sense. but i'm wondering if sort of standard practice in congress should yield to what many perceive to be an extremely urgent situation. >> i think it is an urgent situation and that's why the first hearings held by anybody, house or senate, is going to be by me and my committee in that. i wasn't quite sure who they were writing about when i read the article, but i will strongly defend the press right to print anything they want, accurate or otherwise, but the fact is -- i'm not suggesting whether this was accurate or not
not apply to me. ahhhh! >> stephanie: he's talking about the obama administration using executive order to bypass congress so they can't get gun control measures done. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over. that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican president but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we'll fight tooth and nail and i promise you there will be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop him from usurping the constitution. >> know what i mean, wink, wink, nudge, nudge dog whistle. here lassie. >> apparently -- >> stephanie: yes. does he not -- the white house knows which stuff is obviously that you can do by executive order and which stuff you can't. they keep putting this information out there. none of the stuff we're talking about has to do with taking your stupid guns. it has to do with, you know, gathering information and that kind of stuff. okay. what are you doing? what are you doing over there? let's go to my ron
it targeted districts. that's what i'm saying. >> we're not talking public people here, we're talking about a video game, a video game creator, it's not-- >> i've got it. another question for you, do you support -- obama's going to exploit children tomorrow, use them as props for a political advantage, and he's going to have all the kids around him. >> you're saying that, it's so sickening. >> sean: i'm right, it is sickening. >> it's the children who were killed, columbine and children killed at sandy hook and children around the country and saying he's he bexploiting them. >> sean: can i say maybe while the president is exploiting these kids, maybe apologize with burdening them with debt, and robbing their piggy banks blind while he has them. >> democrat like president obama are used to exploiting children. and using children to watch him sign the health care bill and using them tomorrow to push the gun legislatures-- not legislation, executive orders, and the families save their children every day through the use of firearms, but we won't see that tomorrow. >> sean: what are you shaking
talking this morning about president obama's announcing new gun control measures that will happen today and there's a new movie that explores gun ownership from a unique perspective, the transformation of someone that buys a gun for protection. here's a little bit of a short film which is called "gun." >> got a problem, bro? >> yeah. >> i have a gun! >> spencer gillis is the writer and director of the short. it's premiering on the sundance film festival on gun appreciation day. nice to have you with us. the film opens with a wife and man in bed who hears someone in their house and it starts in the middle of what must be the most terrifying thing, there's an intruder, he opens the door, he sees the intruder and someone is going through their stuff. tell me what this story's about. >> really it's about the influence of power on the human mind, you know, you have a man who buys a gun and it leads to these dark fantasies that he starts to have and it just takes him down a path that could have very serious consequences. >> what was your point? i mean, are you a gun advocate? are you an anti-
-style assault weapons and a ten-round limit for magazines. [ applause ] >> that was president obama outlining a raft of legislations, proposals, and executive actions he intends to take to curb gun violence in this country. karen, let's talk about what the president just outlined there. we know he signed several executive actions, he signed several executive actions. among them, strengthening background checks, the ability of federal agencies to share information. also, perhaps long overdue, pushing forward a nomination of todd jones to be head of the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, and firearms. there's not been a director in six years. he also outlined, not a huge surprise, we've been talking about a lot of these measures in recent days, several new things he'd like congress to take action on, including universal background checks, the assault weapons ban he is going forward with, and a ban on high-capacity magazine clips, and a crackdown on gun trafficking, which has less to do, perhaps, with newtown, and more to do with the increased gun violence that we saw in intercities across the country.
, connecticut. using tragedy for change. >> bob: do you know that barack obama called every one of the families that lost kids in the massacre and talked to them for a minimum of 45 minutes? give them credit. >> eric: he is using children who allegedly written this -- >> bob: children getting massacred. what is the problem? >> bob: let me see if we defend this. go to newtown, connecticut. >> kimberly: is it healthy and appropriate to use children as political pawns? >> eric: it's perfectly healthy and -- >> bob: this is perfectly healthy and the right thing to do. >> dana: are kids that are victims of the drug war, are they part of the press conference? >> eric: chicago murders up. they represented hundreds more of those killed fightinger if rornist afghanistan. this is chicago where they have the toughest, the toughest gun laws in the country. >> andrea: deal with the problem in chicago. do you know what he announced today he would be doing? divesting. pension funds in illinois. >> bob: good. >> greg: >> really, bob? that is denying public employee pension retirement. that is profitable for th

during lighter is not flying any time soon. last planning on having to talk? we will check on current conditions in the sierra and have deals for you if you want to know about it. at 845 president obama will announce his plans on what the government can do to curb gun violence. we watch the proposal here on the kron4 morning news. (male announcer) live from the bay area here is your kron 4 news >> it is called the boeing streamliners 787 and so far it has been quite a nightmare. so much so that two japanese airlines have grounded that aircraft george >> georgia is following the traffic here this morning. and president obama will unveil his plan for curbing gun violence across america this morning. it is a cool morning and that is the headline here. first on the george with a hot spot. >> as a we have a for a couple of slow downs on 880 in the southbound direction. it was a motorcycle accident after another crash it happened earlier this morning at stevenson. for the second day in a row we're looking at backups coming out of san leandro and the southbound direction. 44 to 46 minutes ar
is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. president obama is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of what caused the violence. that is a very strong response from someone who's talked about as a 2016 potential candidate. >> and he also accused the president of abusing his executive power in the 23 actions. when you read the 23 actions, frankly, these are very weak directives. there's not much more the white house could do. they've got a whole bunch of things out there, but to call it an overreach is a big, big stretch there. but you're right, andrea, that's presidential politics. the most important responses, though, on this front have come from the two people in charge of putting legislation on the floor of the house and the senate. and speaker boehner's spokesperson said we'll be happy to look at any proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not going to vote on anything unless they know it can pass the house. here we are, stalemate. >> exactly. >> back
. >> the question is, what methods will the president use. on "morning joe" today, senior obama campaign advisor robert gibbs suggested that getting meaningful legislation passed is going to be a long slog, but that the white house has talked about getting his election apparatus involved in this fight. let's listen. >> the president has the most exciting campaign apparatus ever built. it's time to turn that loose. it's time to turn that loose for something more than just an election, right? if the nra's got a list, then obama for america has a bigger list and it is time to get activated again. >> so susan, he's surrounding himself with kids today, new winewtown families are going to be here, very powerful image. he still has the inaugural address, the state of the union. how much is the white house going to depend on public pressure swaying congress to get some of this passed? >> well, i think that the president will do some things by executive action, that will maybe not go as far as some gun control advocates like but i am not convinced this will be the health care initiative of his second ter

president and certainly president obama with their strength of the office and going around the country and talking to americans which basically agree with the president, it's going to be up to the people across the country to talk to their members of congress to make sure that we and get this done. this can save lives. we've saw that. when the large magazine clips, which i've been reintroducing ever since 204, when that ban was in place, we did not see these magazines out on the streets. and they were very expensive because they were rare. we can do that again to cut that down. we're not going to be taking away anyone's right to own a gun. the supreme court already did that. but with the president laying out what he did, in a very holistic way, by the way, by working with our schools, making sure we have community policing, have psychologists. it's going to be up to the schools to make the decision on what they want, but we should be there to help them. ifwe can't protect our children from school or someone going to the movies, i think that has hit the heart of everybody in this countr
. that proposal comes as more families realize that no matter how cheap college isn't worth it. we talk to the woman who wrote the book on education in america, 10:35 this morning. >>> the inauguration is next monday. the second term begins. my how times change. here's my take, four years ago, obama stood before america and spoke eloquently of his hopes for the future. he proclaimed unity of purpose over conflict and discord. his words, his words indeed. fast forward, two days ago, president obama engaged in extreme conflict and discord when he directly attacked his political opponents. the republicans he said were suspicious about whether the government should make sure kids in poverty get enough to eat. the republicans. his words. clearly the tone has changed. and then we have the economic backdrop to the inauguration. four years ago it was desperate times. but the president offered hope that we would spend a ton of money and recover quickly. fast forward, we've spent the money. we have not recovered. the economy has been in the doldrums for four long years and our debt is truly out o
